The SDB Day 2021 was a great success!
The conferences have been recorded. The full videos and the speakers’ presentations will gradually be available here.
The SDB Day, an international Satellite-Derived Bathymetry Technology and User Forum, is hosted by EOMAP/ EOMAP Australia and took place in 2018 and 2019.
This year, due to the current Covid-19 situation, it was held as two virtual conferences on
27th of January 2021: Americas, Caribbean, Europe and
10th of February 2021: Asia and Oceania
Keynote Speakers for the SDB Day 2021 included Commander Chris Waterson of the Royal Australian Navy and Captain Yanuar of Pushidrosal, Indonesia.
Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB) has experienced accelerating uptake in recent years, with users from industry, government and academia using this cost-effective and reliable method for multi-disciplinary hydrographic seabed mapping projects, hydrodynamic modelling, reconnaissance surveys and environmental campaigns across the globe.
As SDB is now being considered as an established survey technology, it is increasingly important that both users and providers worldwide have a venue for meeting as well as exchanging information on current and future capabilities or requirements.
The inaugural SDB Day 2018 took place in the Lake District of Bavaria, Germany, and offered a unique opportunity for users and providers to discuss capabilities, data integration, requirements and quality standards.
SDB Day 2019 was organised and co-sponsored by EOMAP and EOMAP Australia, leading provider of SDB and coastal mapping services, and took place at the Mantra Hotel on the Sunshine Coast’s Mooloolaba Beach in Australia.
